Reinventing the Left Synopsis

In this important new book a remarkable group of authors - academics, journalists and politicians - offer a radical reappraisal of the future of Left political theory and policy in the context of recent changes in society. Compiled by the Institute for Public Policy Research, the volume includes contributons by Anthony Giddens, Perry Anderson, Gordon Brown, Anne Phillips, Michel Rocart, David Marquand and Will Hutton among others and sets out many new ideas and concepts.

Reinventing the Left Press Reviews

'Brimming with new ideas on citizenship, civil society, community, direct democracy, empowerment, reform of the welfare state, and the need for more supranational and regional government.' The Economist 'The collection of essays ... gives a penetrating analysis of the future of the left-of-centre politics ... The essays give modern relevance to old values.' The Hindu 'These essays represent a very important attempt to engage in a new discussion about the future and meaning of the left.' Renewal 'This book's contributors have rediscovered the left from some of its earlier roots and redefined it in today's terms. Moreover, with a spirit of optimism, they have discussed many of the more important aims and principles from which the policies of the next British government may be forged.' Political Studies 'A penetrating analysis of the future of the left-of-centre politics and its viability at a time when communism is dead and gone, social democracy appears to fragile to transform history, and the Enlightenment confidence about the future being full of universal peace has collapsed. Superseding the traditional definitions of the Left, the essays give modern relevance to old values.' The Literary Review
